SOUTHEND GROUP MAY NEWSLETTER
Here's our May Newsletter.
There are the notes of the meeting on 14th May plus details of letter-writing and fundraising.
Things to note:
Martin’s Sponsored Walk .Martin needs your company and sponsorship on SUNDAY 2nd August starting at 2:00pm at Gunners Park and walking 7 miles to Leigh –on-Sea. Please let us know if you’ll join him or if you’ll sponsor him. firstname.lastname@example.org. There’s a sponsorship form on the website. Sun hats and high-viz Amnesty jackets to be worn!
DO SOMETHING IF YOU THINK THE HUMAN RIGHTS ACT IS WORTH SAVING. AI is trying to create wider public support for the Human Rights Act. There are a lot of myths and misinformation about the Act. Read some of the background and the answers to FAQ’s and you might want to sign the on-line petition. But hurry – a bill is likely to feature in the Queen’s speech next week. You could also sign the 38 Degrees petition.
Amnes Tea Mike & Muriel are holding an Amnes Tea at 36 Orchard Avenue, Hockley SS5 5BE, on Sunday 12th July, 2:30pm – 5:00pm. Please supply a cake! There’s a poster on the website - please pin it up somewhere if you can.
THANK YOU to all of you who’ve sent in subscriptions and donations – we’ve received £160 so far but we will need to find more if we’re to keep going. If you haven’t already, please send and your £10 subscription – and support one of our fundraising events, the Sponsored Walk or Amnes Tea. The annual running costs of the Group are over £400, mainly postage. Last year we spent almost £400 on postage, almost entirely airmail for appeal letters and letters of support. This year the minimum cost of an airmail stamp has risen to £1.
